Penderyn are delighted to announce that the 8th in their ‘Icons of Wales’ series, called Hiraeth, and is now available to order online.
This edition costs £55 and commemorates the wonderful Welsh word, ‘Hiraeth’. Difficult to translate into English; some say it means ‘yearning’ or ‘homesickness’, but the BBC’s Roy Noble summed it up very nicely as: “a longing for your homeland, your heritage and your very being”.
This whisky is an ex-Bourbon cask finish and is bottled at 46% abv. This is the first time Penderyn have released a core range single malt using mainly spirit from the pot stills, which we introduced in 2014.
Nose: Elegant and floral with light oak notes, vanilla, raisins, toffee apples, citrus peel and a hint of lime.
Palate: A delicate smooth single malt with honeyed fruits, vanilla, cinnamon spice and a hint of nutmeg.
Finish: Soft honey and vanilla notes fade to a malty finish.
